...Warm and Dry Again Sunday...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will drift across the Upper Midwest
through Sunday. This will continue the string of dry days with
above normal temperatures. This will change Monday as a weak cold
front will move across the region and is expected to bring rain to
most of the area. There could even be a few rumbles of thunder
Monday afternoon and evening. Temperatures behind the front will
not be much cooler with the above normal readings expected to
continue for much of next week. A much larger storm system still
looks to impact the region late next week. However, considerable
uncertainty still exists on the track of the storm and the types
of precipitation it will produce.
